If your TOF value is too great then this will also result in the ribbon being broken. Try reducing this value.

I have a zebra z6mplus the ribbon keeps breaking


You may have your contrast set too high. If it breaks as it feeds under the printhead (while printing) your contrast may be set too high.
You also could have a ribbon spindle issue. Are both ribbon spindles turning?

DataCard printer ribbon breaks


First, what color is it breaking on? Yellow, Magenta, Cyan, Black, Topcoat?

Next, I would do is clean all the rollers in the printer with isoprophyl alcohol (99% if you can find it, 91% is ok, 75% is you're in a bind). This is a common problem

Then, load the Printer Diagnostics from your print driver CD. In diagnostics, you can set the BASE POWER for YMC, K or Topcoat. The base power is totally different from intensity. As the printhead gets old, you may need to back off the intensity to keep the ribbon from breaking.

Lastly, take a look at the ribbon:
Is the image placed in the same spot of the ribbon on each panel or does it move (creep) higher or lower? This creeping action is caused by many things and would be best to be serviced by a technician.

Finally, printhead replacement. About $695 MSRP

Ribbon keeps breaking


It might be because the printhead is heating up too high, and burning the ribbon.
Try lowering the heat in the driver.

Breaking Ribbon


Ribbon breaking continuously is caused by 2 common problems. 1. The printhead is going down before OR after the card has passed through. You would know this when you open your cover, and unlock you printhead, is the break before or after the card? Try printing the test page from the driver. That doesn't print "Edge to Edge" so if this is the problem, it should not break. 2. The print head heat settings are too high. If this is so, you can change this on the printers menu panel. I can explain more information, once I know your problem.
